I’m always trying to get my girls to eat more veggies. We seem to always offer them at dinner, but lunch and snacks seems to be forgotten in the veggie department. I recently whipped up a chopped salad with one ingredient that got them excited to try it: Goldfish® crackers. This Goldfish salad for kids is just a combination of some crunchy veggies with crispy Goldfish crackers, topped with creamy ranch dressing. I mean, who wouldn’t love that?

Goldfish Salad For Kids
If you are like me, then it’s probably always a struggle to get kids to eat their veggies. While I never want to force my children to eat anything, I still think it’s important to keep introducing a variety of foods on their plate to get them comfortable with trying new things. I’ve heard that you may have to give them a new food 30 times before they will even try one bite. That seems like it’s pretty accurate according to how our dinners go around here!
My older girls are just now starting to love salad, but my younger kiddos are still not there yet. I do know that they LOVE Goldfish. So, I decided to create a salad that is colorful and fun with some Goldfish sprinkled on top! While they may not have eaten an entire serving the first time I gave this to them, it was a way to introduce salad that got them excited. It’s always about trying new things, right? This Goldfish salad for kids is so yummy that adults will love it too!
I headed to Walmart and grabbed some bulk Goldfish Cheddar Made with Whole Grain crackers, and the Pretzel variety. When in doubt, just get the biggest size! That’s my philosophy anyways. Then, gather the rest of your ingredients.
Ingredients Needed For Goldfish Salad For Kids
For this recipe, you will need:
Your favorite veggies (bell peppers, carrots, broccoli, cucumbers, avocado)
Chop your veggies up into bite sized pieces.
Just use any combo of veggies your kids will like. I think not having lettuce makes this easier for little ones to eat.
Once everything is mixed, sprinkle the Goldfish crackers on top.
Drizzle on your favorite ranch dressing.
This chopped salad is so colorful! It will brighten up any plate. To make it super easy, you can have all the veggies chopped up ahead of time and kept in the fridge. Then when it’s lunch or snack time, pour the veggies in a bowl and top with Goldfish crackers and dressing and you have an easy and wholesome option!
